ABOUT BACKUP4ALL

Short Overview of Backup4all



Backup4all is an award-winning data backup software for Windows. This backup utility was designed to protect your valuable data from partial or total loss by automating backup tasks, password protecting and compressing it to save storage space. This backup application is feature rich and offers an intuitive interface making all features easily accessible for both beginners and professionals.

Backup4all is compatible with Windows 10/8.1/8, 7, Vista, XP, Windows Server 2016, 2012/2008/2003 Server. Our backup utility performs all four backup types: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and mirror backup. It also employs an unique type (smart backup) that will decide when to use full, differential or incremental automatically. It also backs up blocks of data (true incremental backups) which means that for large files it will only back-up the small parts that changed in it since the last backup.

Main Features

Here's what makes Backup4all great

PRO
CLOUD BACKUPS

Back-up your data in the cloud to Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, BOX, Hidrive, Hubic and over 37 Amazon S3 Compatible cloud destinations (i.e. Cisco, Google Cloud Storage, Hitachi, Tiscali, Verizon).

ALL
FREE BACKUP PLUGINS

You can load plugins for backing up or restoring specific programs' settings or other custom data (like game saves, email data, etc.). A plugin is actually an XML file that once imported in Backup4all adds a predefined backup.
There are over 100 free backup plugins that you can load in Backup4all and easily back-up specific apps.

PRO
TRUE INCREMENTALS

Backup4all can back-up using an incremental backup type. Incremental backup provides a faster method of backing up data than running full backups.
During an incremental backup, only files changed since the most recent backup are included. Its advantage is that it takes the least time to complete.

ALL
SMART BACKUP TYPE

Backup4all employs a unique system that decides automatically what backup type to use in order to save the most file versions (within the same allotted storage space) on your destination and improve the backup speed.
Using the smart backup option you optimize the backup process and reduce decision time as you don't have to compare various backup types to chose what's more suitable.

ALL
STANDARD ZIP COMPRESSION

Backup4all creates standard ZIP files. This format is compatible with any zip utility currently available on the market. Unlike other backup programs, for zip files greater than 2 GB, Backup4all uses ZIP64 technology.
This allows unlimited ZIP file size and also lets you encrypt your data using AES encryption (256-bits).

PRO   STD
BLOCK-LEVEL BACKUP

Block-level backup speeds up the backup process of large files as it only back-up the modified blocks of data instead of the entire file.
As an example, if you have a backup job for a large Outlook profile, whenever you receive a new email Backup4all knows to back-up only the bits of data that modified rather than the whole PST.

PRO
MULTIPLE BACKUP TYPES

Backup4all offers four backup types to choose from: full backup, differential backup, incremental backup and mirror backup.
By default it uses a smart backup option to automatically chose which backup type to execute for optimizing backup speed and keep the most file versions possible without exceeding the allotted storage space.

PRO
EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS

You can configure Backup4all to send custom emails after a backup finished, with success, error and warning notifications. Additional options allow you to attach the backup log file and send the email to several addresses.
Backup4all also displays notifications in the Messages section when certain actions occur (i.e. when finishing a backup).

ALL
BUILT-IN SCHEDULER

You can easily set up a powerful scheduler using predefined (or custom) scheduling configurations to make unattended backups. This way you set the backup and forget about it.
Backups can also be scheduled to run when the computer shuts down. You can also schedule restore operations.

ALL
MESSAGES

Backup4all shows messages when certain actions occur (i.e. when finishing a backup). These notifications can be shown in a pop-up window or be silently saved in the Messages panel.

ALL
File and Folder Filters

Powerful file and folder filtering engine with lots of options to filter by attribute, size, date, name and type). You can create filters using a combination of restrictions and you can define separate filters for inclusion and exclusion.

ALL
AUTOMATIC UPDATES

Backup4all can now check for updates either manually or automatically at a scheduled date. This allows you to better stay in touch with the latest development of Backup4all.

PRO
ENCRYPTION

You can protect your ZIP files by setting a password for each backup job. Besides normal password protection, Backup4all also supports 128-bit, 192-bit and 256-bit AES encryption.
These numbers reflect the encryption key size used to encrypt the data - a higher key strength provides stronger encryption. Currently the 256-bit AES encryption is considered military-grade.

ALL
BACKUP & RESTORE WIZARDS

Backup4all includes a step-by-step wizard with instructions to create a new backup job by selecting Where, What, How and When to backup.
It also includes a wizard for restoring files. You can quickly restore the latest version of a file/folder as well as restoring versions of files backed up at a specific date.

ALL
BACKUP CATALOG FILE

Backup4all stores a summary snapshot of the file and folder information into a backup catalog file (".bkc") each time a backup runs.
This catalog is stored in a different file than the backup itself and is used to keep track of backed up data. The advantage of using a catalog is faster backup execution and no 3rd party interference.

ALL
BACKUP LOCKED OR OPEN FILES

Backup4all uses the Volume Shadow Copy service that allows you to back up local open files from NTFS partitions. Now you can back up your emails and settings without closing Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or other email clients.

PRO
PROGRAM SECURITY

Backup4all offers an option to lock its interface so that when it starts you will need to provide a password in order to unlock it and be able to make changes to its settings. This way sensitive information is protected (i.e. server/email passwords).
